  1. Still looking for the right owner. Free first year is a great deal for this format. Get in now - the offseason is just about to get interesting!
  2. If you understand prospects well, you can really crush in this league. I highly recommend that you come with a knowledge of minor league players. Email me with interest at fishery002003@yahoo.com and I'll link you to the full roster page and to the league forum and rules. Please use "PTA" in your email subject line. Thanks.
  3. Still taking applications for this slot. Email me at fishery002003@yahoo.com to learn more about the league and this team's roster or to ask any questions!
  4. I should add that this team has the 5th pick in each round of the offseason Prospect Draft.

  6. League is entering its 2nd year, with a fun group of very active and knowledgeable owners. All owners are required to pay a 2nd year in advance, which is how we avoid the headaches and quick fold-ups typically associated with dynasty leagues. This team is a rebuilder obviously, hence the first year for $0, but that is a ridiculously good deal, seeing as how you get a full year to get the team back in shape. And there are some pieces to work with, including Sale. Kluber and a large group of interesting prospects led by Keston Hiura. More importantly, perhaps, in a couple months we will have our first ever "Rule 5" style draft, during which owners will only be allowed to protect a few players, meaning that weaker teams should have a terrific chance to improve their rosters. Our league runs waivers weekly, but lineup changes are allowed daily. We use 5x5 Roto scoring (with OBP instead of AVG and W+QS instead of just W). Rosters are 46-deep, with lots of flexibility in terms of how you choose to construct it. Email me at fishery002003@yahoo.com to learn more about the league and this team's roster or to ask any questions.
  7. Oops, the above should read: "...all owners in this league are paid up through 2020 ." and "... this would require an advance for 2020. However, you will not need to pay anything for the 2019 season"
  8. Great league with great owners, entering its 5th season. and the way we prevent most problems is by having owners commit to the following season by paying in advance. So, all owners in this league are paid up through 2019. This ensures that they have skin in the game for the future and no incentive to dump, collude, etc. You would be asked to do the same, and so this would require an advance for 2019. However, you will not need to pay anything for the 2019 season (but you will, of course, be entitled to 100% of any prizes you win). I won't list every single aspect of the league here (details by email to those interested), but I will mention that funds are kept on LeagueSafe, lineups are set daily, and it's a 5*5 roto league (with OBP instead of AVG, and W+QS instead of W). This team is not in terrific shape; outside of a very cheap Andrew Benintendi, it doesn't have many great MLB keepers. But the team is not saddled with any bad contracts either, and since there is only a max of 8 keepers per team (plus promoted prospects), there will be plenty of chances to build up your roster at auction, and you'll have plenty of cash. I can't promise everyone that will be available in auction until I get keeper decisions, but I can already confirm a whole bunch of big names, including Jose Ramirez, Bryce Harper, Manny Machado, Lindor, Yelich, Sale and many more to come after keeper decisions are made. The team also has a couple interesting prospects as well, including Jo Adell and Brendan Rodgers.

  9. This is a fun keeper league (with contracts) entering its 9th season, and the way we prevent most problems is by having owners commit to the following season by paying in advance. So, all owners in this league are paid up through 2020. This ensures that they have skin in the game for the future and no incentive to dump, collude, etc. You would be asked to do the same, and so this would require an advance for 2020. However, you will only need to pay 50% of the buy-in for the 2019 season (but you will, of course, be entitled to 100% of any prizes you win). I won't list every single aspect of the league here (details by email to those interested), but I will mention that funds are kept on LeagueSafe, lineups are set daily, and it's a 5*5 roto league (with OBP instead of AVG, and W+QS instead of W). This team is not in bad shape, though outside of Francisco Lindor, it doesn't have many solid MLB keepers. But there are no bad contracts either, and since there is only a max of 8 keepers per team (plus promoted prospects), there will be plenty of chances to build up your roster at auction, and you'll have plenty of cash. I can't promise everyone that will be available in auction until I get keeper decisions, but I can already confirm a bunch of big names, including Justin Verlander, Aaron Nola, Gerrit Cole, Joey Votto, Anthony Rizzo, Khris Davis, and many more to come after keeper decisions are made. The best thing about this team, though, is its prospect roster. Prospects are incredibly valuable in this format, and this team is loaded: Eloy Jimenez, Royce Lewis, Jo Adell and others.

  10. This is a decent team that just needs someone who understands prospects. The free first year gives you a freeroll towards prize money with super-cheap keepers like $0 Benintendi and $3 Pham. Auction leagues are not for everyone, so please make sure you know how to value players. If that's a strength of yours, you'll love this league. (Roto, daily lineups) email me at fishery002003@yahoo.com
  11. This spot was taken, but he had to back out at the last minute. So, you can still have this team for free this year: email me at fishery002003@yahoo.com

  13. This is still available, and still a good deal. If you know how to acquit yourself in an auction format, you can be freerolling prize money this season. fishery002003@yahoo.com
  14. This team is still available (and still a great deal!). It pays out four slots, and you'll be free-rolling a chance to win $270. Again, email with interest: fishery002003@yahoo.com
